Heyyy! Lol 😅
I took a very small but well needed break from social media, well my family insisted that I break from social media and just from working on my website and workshop, trying to find balance for me is difficult because mentally I feel like I can do it all but physically it's too much, lol. But I miss you guy's fill me in on what's been happening in your lives! Any new events? New website's being launched? New promotions?! This isnt a one way friendship, I want to support and motivate you guy's, us sister's have to support each other, lol. ✊
This past weekend we drove out to Santa Maria to celebrate my cousin's life. It was a beautiful service filled with friends and family. Everyone has such beautiful stories about Marina. I wish we spent more time together while she was here. After her service we spent a lot of time with our SM family. It was a really good time. I made a vow to stay in touch and to reach out at least once a week. I disliked the fact that we only get together during funerals, so I'm making an attempt to change it. I love my family and regret that on both sides of the family that we're not close. How are you staying connected to your family? In this photo, Ash was happy that he stacked the jelly containers.#ripcousin#somethingsabouther#familyfirst ❤️ @official_anastasiamarie
We are all familiar with K-beauty by now, right? Natural skincare rituals have been a huge part of Korean skincare for centuries & are currently all the rage.
Neogen's Bio Peels in wine are one of my absolute favorite K-beauty products at the moment. This is the perfect exfoliator whether you prefer chemical or manual exfoliation. Dead skin cells are sloughed off the surface of the skin using the unique 3 layer pad technology, as lactic acid penetrates deep into your pores to clean out pore-clogging debris.
Its star ingredient, Resveratrol, comes from red wine and is naturally fermented, with naturally occurring AHAs that also help with the exfoliation process. Resveratrol is a powerful antioxidant which helps prevent free radicals from pigmenting or forming wrinkles on your skin. They work quickly to brighten, tighten, smooth & promote cell turnover. I saw a difference in my skin overnight. Too bad you can't just plunge your face in wine!

I think this my favorite dish that I've made using Trader Joe's lentil pasta. Super quick and satisfying. I tried to chronicle the cooking process on my Insta stories if you're curious about how I made it. #simpleeats#Sundaydinner
Lesson of the Day: When life gives you lemons make lemonade, and cocktails and lots of food.
Thank you soooooo much to everyone who came out today for the dinner party photo shoot. For a while I've been feeling like my creative touch has been rusty but this shoot could not have been a success without each of you. Huge thanks to the fab @redbeyondfood for creating such a delicious menu. Girl really throws down in the kitchen so follow her. Thanks to @more.via.ally for being our photographer and lovely dinner guest. And of course thanks to @hey_kam , @hayet.rida @gabrielacmora and Aridai and my bestie Jill for being great models and helpers. You should see their cocktail making skills! The day started out very rocky but I couldn't have been in better company. I think we should do this again soon 😉 stay tuned for the full shoot!

🌙 in Leo.
This energy has had me on the best kind of vibes today. I've eaten good food, reorganized my space, cleansed my space physically, drank good wine, laughed out loud, spent time with family, received gifts, listened, taken notes and now it's time I control this energy and set my intentions. My ritual consists of a cleansing bath, candlelight, journaling, smudging and praying. I'm ready.
Singing "Girl, get a grip come on pull it together, this only a Sunshower, we been through worst weather!" :)
If you're reading this, both YOU and I have a 100% success rate of getting through bad days, and real talk, those bad days aren't so bad. We were probably reactive, rather than proactive to the day and FELT like the world was against us. But I PROMISE you there isn't anything that we can't do with the right mindset.
Ya'll know I could care less about the number, but I feel AMAZING, not because of the number, but because I did what I said I was going to do. Was it easy? Nope! Was it hard, lil bit, but it was SIMPLE. The ONLY commitments I made for myself from 7/1 - 7/21 were to:
1. Drink 1 Gallon of water
2. Track a VERIFIABLE weigh-in DAILY
3. Get at least 6hrs of sleep at night, no matter what
4. Workout for at least 30 min a day
I'm a data girl, so it was EXTREMELY hard not to track m blood sugar and ketones everyday. I wanted to keep it super simple; which to me means doable and repeatable. My daily weigh-ins are over, at least for the next 10 days - August 1, 2017
The greatest hurdle in any journey is always the mental catering that we do. @MelRobbinslive said yet another something that stuck with me, so whenever I would get an negative thought that ran contrary to my goals, I would "mentally b*** slap myself. -
To be continued. . . . .
Off to be perfectly🎀imperfect

One of my business partners just posted this and I wanted to share. She started by quoting Les Brown my favorite motivational speaker.
"Too many of us are not living our dreams because we are living our fears."
We all to commonly fall to that Pay check to pay check lifestyle, why???😕.
🔹Because were scared of failing,
🔹Because its scary stepping outside of the box or into the unknown.
🔹Because were simply lazy.
🔹Because we are really deep down afraid of what others may say.
🔹Because it sounds like too much work to build an empire.
🔹Because we don't have enough time as it is.
🔹Because were exhausted.
🔹Because were not thinking about our future generations.
We are our only limitations.
Lord how true is this?!

Tonight was the first night we read this book. My daughter asked me questions about God as we read it- where He is, what He does. I told her God is everywhere and in everything. "He creates life," I told her.
Did He create Me?
"Yes. He created your soul and sent you down to me so that I could be your mommy, and you could be my baby."
That's the most beautiful thing you've ever said to me.
I cried. I dont go to church as often as I should, but I want to instill that love of God in my children in and outside the church. He is love, and I want my kids to always remember that.

"You don't have to kick him out or let him leave, you can remove yourself from a toxic relationship and move forward with a MAN that's right for you". It is a waste of precious time and goodness trying to make the wrong man be right for you. In fact, 🤔it's like holding yourself hostage from HAPPINESS!
There are billions of men on the planet..., good Godly ones looking for a good woman. Some times the right man can be right under our nose but we won't release ourselves from that ONE joka that's right for someone else.😉 -Yumichic💕

I love KALE!! Kale is full of benefits - high in fiber, which helps with digestion
- excellent source for calcium, actually a better source of calcium than MILK (for those of you concerned about your bones 😜)
- rich in antioxidants, which help protect against some cancers and other diseases - packed with omega-fatty acids, which help with inflammation (good for people with conditions that cause inflammation like arthritis and asthma) - great for detoxing for all of the reasons listed above 😊
Get you some kale in this week! Add some protein and a good source of fat and you have a great salad!! 💕
Kiss your own fingers and hug your own curves. You are made of waves and honey and spicy peppers when it's necessary. You are a goddess. I hope you haven't forgotten. - @emery_allen
